Reporting on Serious Road Traffic Casualties
To further improve road safety, it is necessary to have a better understanding of the real number of road traffic casualties, including serious injuries. This is made possible by linking different sources of accident data, including police and hospital data. This report, prepared by the IRTAD Group, reviews how serious injuries are defined in IRTAD countries and identifies and assesses methodologies for linking different sources of crash data.

Roundtable on "Major transport infrastructure projects and regional economic development"
In December, 40 of the world's leading researchers and practitioners discussed the challenges of gauging the socio-economic costs and benefits of very large investments in transport networks. The issues are of perennial interest to researchers and decision-makers, but have become highly topical in the current macroeconomic environment which highlights trade-offs between the need to save and to maintain economies' potential to grow.
